Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, the 19-year-old daughter of Jon Bon Jovi, was arrested on drug possession charges, EW has confirmed.
Local news station WKTV reports that police were called to a college dorm early this morning after a student overdosed on heroin (it’s not clear if Bongiovi was that student). Bongiovi and another student were then arrested. Bongiovi was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana, and was released on an appearance ticket for her next court date, per WKTV.
A rep for Bon Jovi did not return EW’s request for comment.
